What is Indoor Vertical Hydroponics Farms?
Vertical Farming is essentially using limited space and resources to grow plants in controlled environments in areas that may not otherwise be conducive to either year-round growth or growth cycles that are fast enough to fully meet demand.
It has vertical NFT shelves rather than horizontal. And requires control of temperature, light, and humidity.
Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil in a horizontal or vertical fashion, where mineral nutrients are provided through the water. Hydroponic systems that allow growing of plants in a vertical fashion are known as vertical Hydroponics.
Which is better, Horizontal Hydroponic or Vertical Hydroponic?
Starting a nutrient film technique (NFT) hydroponic setup can be quite a challenge for any grower trying to grow commercially. The key question is whether you should grow horizontally or vertically. Well, it is (almost) all a question of space!
Horizontal NFT systems are best suited for larger spaces and for maximizing the growth of the plants.
Vertical NFT systems are best suited for smaller spaces and faster yields as they limit the maximum growth of the plant.
The nutrient film technique (NFT) in Hydroponics is one of the six main types of Hydroponics techniques. It has reached mainstream popularity because it’s often considered the most efficient technique out there. The principle behind NFTs is simple. Net pots are lined on an inclined grow channel. The roots receive a continuous flow of a thin stream of nutrient rich solution carried by those channels.
Why Hydroponic is the future of farming?
Advantages Indoor Vertical Hydroponics Farms
Vertical farming takes much less space or utilizes space in a much better way. So, a real advantage of vertical indoor farming is that it take so much less space or utilizes or repurposes older spaces like buildings that are no longer being used to grow plants or food sources.
Vertical indoor farming is climate controlled so it can be done year-round regardless of environmental challenges.
Vertical indoor farming is highly predictable due to the sophisticated systems that are now employed in commercial growing operations. Technological advances including highly effective grow lighting can not only aid in providing an optimal grow environment, but in fact, they can aid in making crop production more predictable and help to accelerate the grow cycle so that more can be produced in a lesser amount of time.
Vertical indoor farming is environmentally friendly and safe. Vertical NFT systems are best suited for smaller spaces and faster yields as they limit the maximum growth of the plant.
Vertical farming can reduce labor, transportation, and other associated growing costs.

Agriplast Advisory Service
We can handle everything for you!
Agricultural advisory services have long been recognized as an important factor in promoting agricultural development. The main objective of Agricultural Advisory is to increase farmers’ access to information, knowledge, and technology for profitable agricultural production.
Why Choose Agriplast Hydroponics
We provide best automation system in the industry to our all-Hydroponics project.
Our automation system monitor and control all important parameters of the Hydroponics set up. Using the IOT technology complete system can be accessed via Computer , tablet or smartphone.
We are the channel partner with Industry auto grow New Zealand for Hydroponics set up automation System.
EBB & FLOW NURSERY
Agriplast uses ebb and flow technology for the nursery of the plants. Ebb and flow gives best results as each net pot get same uniform water and nutrient.
After certain weeks Net pot directly can be shifted from Ebb and Flow to NFT system and ready for next lot.
Ebb and flow has separate circulation pumps and tank than NFT system which makes nutrient management easy and efficient.
Training and Support
Agriplast has Inhouse subject experts in all the aspects of Greenhouse and Hydroponics who leads our project team in PAN India and more than 15 countries.
Agriplast give complete training of Hydroponics onsite to each of its project which ensure that every ground staff get the understanding of complete system.
Complete support right from seed selection till harvest is provided to ensure the project success.
